Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage


Published 2012


Ripto's Rage, developed by Insomniac Games, is the sequel to the 1998 platformer "Spyro the Dragon". The original Insomniac trilogy finishes off with "Spyro: Year of the Dragon". The games were exclusive to Playstation and they kind of became a bastion for the Playstation brand.

Spyro 2 was released in North America under "Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage!" on October 31, 1999 and in Europe as "Spyro 2: Gateway to Glimmer" on November 5, 1999. Japan got it on March 16, 2000 as: "Spyro X Sparx Tondemo Tours" A pretty cool name in my opinion.

But after the third game Insomniac went on to develop Ratchet & Clank and left the Spyro franchise to other developers who went and created a bunch of shit games. Nowadays Spyro doing a little better in the Skylanders franchise.


Yo JAF; Why this game?
The original Spyro games are among my absolute favorite games. Sure, nostalgia has a little bit to with it but the games have crazy solid fundamentals. The level design in particular is fantastic. In its core Spyro is just a simple platformer but its executed really well. I also don't find that it's aged poorly at all, especially compared to most PS1 era games. The camera is kind of poor but the controls are still pretty solid.

Joining me in this endeavor will be Sinatrapod.
